Flexible Pricing

With Citus Cloud, you are billed only for the time your cluster is running, with no upfront fees. You can choose between Citus Cloud plans for dev environments as well as production. And if you need pricing for on-prem software rather than our fully-managed database as a service, we have a Citus Enterprise option, too.

Worry-Free Postgres That Scales Out

At Citus, we make sharding simple. So you can focus on your app—not your database.

Power of Postgres

We get that you trust Postgres. So we’ve built Citus as a Postgres extension and not a fork, we stay current with the latest releases. With Citus, you get to use your familiar SQL toolset and leverage all your Postgres expertise.

Convenience of Cloud

Get to market faster with a fully-managed database as a service and a team that has decades of experience managing Postgres databases in the cloud. So you can focus on your app, your customers, your innovations. And not your database.

SQL That Scales Out

You shouldn’t have to re-architect your app in order to scale out your database. Whether you use Rails or Django, we make sharding PostgreSQL simple. Scaling out your Citus database is as easy as dragging a slider.
